Good Morning,

How is everyone this wonderful beautiful Monday morning?  I do not have a project ready to show you today so I wanted to post some new products and other products that you may not know  SUSANA has in stock.

There are sooooo many I can only show you a few, so be sure and check  SCACD  and browse.  You will be surprised.

These are just a few of the  DIES BY SCACD.  Susana designed these herself.

The newest cool paint to hit the market - VIVA DECOR - 3D PAINT.  This paint is so creamy and shimmery - best of all - WILL NOT buckle your paper.

New SATURATED CANARY STAMPS.  These are so cute.

Last, but not least, new 6 x 6 Paper Pads which are a MUST HAVE.  Echo Park and Carta Bella just to name a few.  Check all of the new paper HERE.

There are so many new products I cannot possibly list them all.  Oh, I forgot to tell you - there is a new section which is my favorite -   MIXED MEDIA .  I love playing with all the background stamps and the mixed media stamps.

Well, off to work now.  Have fun today and browse around the store.  Let me know what your favorite is.

 Good Morning!!

Today I have something a little different to share with you.  I am still playing with mixed media and journaling.   I love all the inks, sprays, mists, etc. and freedom to just try things and if it doesn't work I just keep trying.  It reaaaaly is lots of fun.

The images are CRAFTY INDIVIDUAL STAMPS - "SEAGULL TRAVELS and "JOURNEY"The sentiment says "sometimes you need to get lost to find yourself".  It comes with the DARKROOM DOOR - WILDERNESS VOL.2 set.  I love all the mixed media stamps SUSANA has in stock.  She carries her own line, MIXED MEDIA by SCACD,   STAMPOTIQUE , DYLUSIONS, TIM HOLTZ, UNITY, CRAFTY INDIVIDUAL, DARKROOM DOOR, ANDY SKINNER, DONNA SALAZAR, and a few others.

If you stamp on the image it will enlarge and you can see the background stamps I used.  The map is a Tim Holtz, the postmark is IMPRESSION OBSESSION  - PASSPORT COLLAGE.  The birds are from the  DYLUSIONS  BIRD ON A WIRE

Also used were several colors of distress inks.  The border was little dark so I used some buff paint to help blend it better.

Thank you for stopping by.

Before I go I want to tell you about the most  AWESOME DIES BY SCACD.  Here are just a few names of the dies - ALICE"S CLOCK STATEMENT CORNER , SUN and MOON STATEMENT CORNER, FANCY FLOWER AND KEY CORNERS, ORNATE DOORPLATE and KNOB, and ORNATE HINGE..  There are others so check them out.  They all cut beautifully.

Can't Have Rainbows Without Rain

Good Morning,

Something a little different for you this morning.  I really don't know why I don't make more tags than I do, they are so versatile.  

For my tag I am using "UMBRELLA PEEKER" from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD - Sampler #7.  She is so cute I couldn't resist her.   She is colored with Copics and I paper pieced her clothing. and highlighted her headband with a little STICKLES  and glossed her umbrella, raincoat, and boots. Again, I made my own background.  Experimenting with different products is more fun than I ever thought it would be.  For my  next project I am going to use dye inks and slowly keep trying various products and see which I like best.  SUSANA carries  a lot of products and is always bringing in new stock so most of what I use she will have in stock.

For the background I used acrylic paints and then various stamps.  The various stamps I used are UNITY STAMPS CHRISTY TOMLINSON - COOPED UP NOTESDYLUSIONS STAMPS  - INBETWEENIES, and for the vines I used  DONNA SALAZAR CLING STAMP - VINE.  The flower is from stash.  To stamp the  flower and the Inbetweenies (small white circles) I used acrylic paint. The sentiment is computer generated.

Thank you for stopping by.

Good Morning,

Today I have something different to share with you.  First, let me tell you about this cute image "I WANT CANDY" by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD . This image is from the SAMPLER #7.  Be sure and check out all the new releases.  There are three:  STORYBOOK COLLECTION, SAMPLER #6, and SAMPLER #7.  Each of these sets are super cute and unique in there own way.  The image is stamped with Momento Ink - Jet Black  and highlighted with  Stickles and gloss on the lollipop.
Did you notice the background?  I have been playing around with different techniques lately and thought I would show you the results of this one.  The paints for the background are LUMINARTE SILK ACRYLIC GLAZE - STARGAZER and KIWI LIME.  There are only a few specks of the lime.  Then I used  DYLUSIONS STENCIL - LETTER JUMBLE   and sponged with pickled raspberry ink and also stazon teal, but the teal is barely noticeable which is okay since it is the background.  For the large white circles I used a bottle cap from one of my sprays and dipped it in white acrylic paint.  The doodling around the edge was freehand using a white pen.  When I was a child my father used to drop my sister and I off at the movies and I always got a big pickle and a big multi color lollipop.  So I thought this sentiment was perfect because the image brought back those childhood memories even though it was just a little thing.  The sentiment is from  DYLUSIONS - THE RIGHT WORDS.  Susana is now carrying a lot of the DYLUSION PRODUCTS  and she has the fastest shipping and best customer service of anyone.

Of course, Susana has in some other new products.  Can't wait to place my order.

New Bo Bunny including their New Double Dots in 6 x 6 form (YUM):
New UNITY Stamps:
New Prima Pin (5 styles):
Some new Mixed Media Resist Canvas shapes and Clock parts:
New Crafters Workshop AND Prima Stencils:

Enjoy the rest of your week !!

Good Morning and Happy Friday! 

Are you enjoying the Blog Hop?  These are just the cutest stamps ever.  You should have arrived here from  AMANDA'S blog where she had beautiful creations for you to view. 

Today get ready for a Cute and Cuddly release from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!!!

Our first set, The Storybook Collection, brings us all back to those childhood days when our best friend was our beloved Teddy Bear. We all told our secrets to our Teddy Bears, had a few misunderstandings but we always made up and were ready for new adventures to unfold.
Next we have a set of 4 adorable little girls with their FUN hats that make up Sampler #6. Each little girl is bound to make you smile and melt your heart.
Our final set, Sampler #7, is a variety of cute and fun! These 4 little girls remind us all of the simple pleasures of childhood from lollipop dreams to playing in the rain. 
The first card is featuring BIG HAT PEEKER from the MINI SAMPLER #6.  She is colored with Copics and then highlighted with STARDUST STICKLES and KAISERCRAFT PEARLS.  The little wooden birds are some I had in my stash, but Susana has some really cute ones here.  They are painted with LUMINARTE PRIMARY MICA POWDER.  You can click on the image to enlarge and see the sparkle. 

On this card I am featuring THE MISUNDERSTANDING from THE STORYBOOK COLLECTION.  She is also colored with Copics and highlighted with STARDUST STICKLES.  I just love the Teddy Bears in this set.  It is finished off with ribbon and flowers from my stash and KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES.

These stamps can be purchased today from SCACD  and for my international friends they can be purchased at QUIXOTIC PAPERIE.
